Rick Santorum Was Fired By CNN After Remarks Concerning Native American Culture Had Been Made.

Previous Republican U.S. representative Rick Santorum has been dropped as a senior political analyst by CNN after comments he made about Native American culture drew analysis. 

In April, Santorum delivered a speech at Young America’s Foundation, a moderate organization, in which he stated:

“We birthed a country from nothing. That is to say, there was not much. That is to say, while we have Native Americans, there isn’t much Native American culture in American culture.

CNN, which felt obligated to drop him as an analyst after the comments, said on Saturday it had headed out in different directions from Santorum

“At the point when I joined up with CNN, I thought I would give an editorial that isn’t consistently heard by the commonplace CNN watcher. I like the chance CNN gave me in the course of recent years, “Santorum said later on Twitter. 

The Native American Journalists Association had encouraged native columnists to try not to work with CNN and had required his excusal from the TV station. 

At the point when Santorum showed up at the organization toward the beginning of May, on “Cuomo Prime Time,” CNN anchor Chris Cuomo got some information about the subject, and Santorum recognized that his remarks were wrong. He said that he misspoke.

“I was discussing, and I misspoke in this regard, I was discussing the establishing, and the standards epitomized in the establishing.” 

“The manner in which we treated Native Americans was horrendous. It conflicts with each bone and all that I’ve at any point battled for, as a pioneer, in Congress, “he told CNN. “I was basically discussing the principal guidelines of the United States, not the Colonies.”
